AWS App Runner services can now communicate with other applications hosted in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). You can now connect you App Runner services to databases in Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), to Redis caches in Amazon ElastiCache, or to message queues in Amazon MQ. You can also connect your services to your own applications in Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), or Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). As a result, web applications and APIs running on App Runner can now get powerful support from data services on AWS to build production architectures.
To enable VPC access for your App Runner service, simply pass the subnets of the VPC and security groups while you create or update your App Runner service. App Runner uses this information to create network interfaces that facilitate communication to a VPC. If you pass multiple subnets, App Runner creates multiple network interfaces—one for each subnet. To learn more about using Amazon VPC with App Runner, see the documentation or the blog, or get started with the console today.
